When the Auto Start/Stop engages, e.g. at a stop light you can press the brake with enough force to prevent the car from moving and NOT force the engine to stop. Only if you press the brake very firmly will the engine shut off. The car will show this message also in the center screen.

Automatic start/stop indicator. Check your manual page 228. It's on every time you start the car. If you don't want it activated you have to turn it off each time start the car. A real PIA in my opinion
I will be picking up my new Cross tomorrow. How do I turn off auto start/stop when I drive it home? I will be picking it up from my credit union. Thank you!

Press the 'A' circled button on the center console at top right above the stick shift. When off the A icon will be shown on the center display in an orange-red color. Must be turned off at each restart of the engine.
Thank you!! Is there anything else I need to know? I have been driving a very old Tacoma, so I'm not use to all the tech!

There was a time when after the sale they spent as long as it took to familiarize you with a car's various features. You can still ask, or try going through the manual and marking pages where you find something you want to understand better, then bring that question back to the dealership, or here!

Good news! You can set it be permanently off. You will need to have the engine on, and then go through the screens on your speedometer until you get to the correct option. I can highlight the exact steps tomorrow.

You can get a disable module for the Auto start/stop which plugs in between the switch and the wire harness. They advertise for the 2021 Corolla it works on the CC also. It recalls the last setting(on/off) before the car was turned off. I leave it always off, no issues.
How was the install? Was hoping for something a bit less sketchy than Aliexpress.
